I Am A Human

I am a human

I have feelings

Thoughts

Desires

I have rights

I have a voice

I have goals

Goals that involve making humanity a better place

I am strong

Determined

Dedicated in achieving my goals

However

I am black

I am impoverished

My community in shambles

I am seen as a threat

Violent

Disobedient

Uneducated

Although reality is quite often more than face value

You see my face, and equate no value

So with cuffed hands

I take a ride to a place where I am no longer human

A place with no regard for my feelings

Thoughts

Desires

I have no rights

No voice

Broken soul

My only goal

Is to become human once more
